The first of two Oklahoma City Thunder watch parties will be held Friday at the Kickoff Bar and Grill.

The event is sponsored by Miami's Blue Alliance chapter the fan club for the state's NBA team.

The Thunder tackles the San Antonio Spurs. The party starts at 6:30 p.m. for a 7 p.m. tip-off.

"There will be big screen TVs tuned to the Thunder game," said

Debra East, captain of the Miami Blue Thunder chapter. "There will be lots of other Thunder fans and Thunder door prizes should make these two events great fun."

She said attendees do not have to be a Blue Alliance member to participate.

Another watch party is planned for April 4, when the Thunder plays the Miami Heat.
